DeepOcean has secured a cable installation and trenching contract from Nexans for ScottishPower Renewable’s East Anglia ONE offshore windfarm in the North Sea.
Under the contract, DeepOcean’s scope is the transport, installation and trenching of export cables. The project will be managed out of the DeepOcean’s Darlington office.
Offshore work will commence by 2019 with the DeepOcean’s cable layer Maersk Connector and purpose built power cable plough, ACP2, supported by DeepOcean’s fleet of dedicated construction support vessels.
“After building an extensive track record providing services on some of the most important offshore wind projects, we are delighted to be given this opportunity to develop our relationship with Nexans and their customer ScottishPower Renewables. There are significant opportunities for local suppliers to support DeepOcean for this scope of work and we also look forward to helping our customer deliver on the Supply Chain Plan for the project,” said Pierre Boyde, DeepOcean’s commercial director for cables & trenching.
